Joanne is one of the most creative photographers we have ever met. She was very professional and she was such a pleasure to work with. We were totally comfortable during the session and she was very punctual. She had a state of the art camera and the finished photos were spectacular; so gorgeous. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for a photographer for a high end photo shoot.. Joanne, thank-you for a great day; you are amazing! Cathy and Jessica Thank-you Joanne you are wonderful.

Absolutely wonderful to work with. Communicated well before the actual shoot an made sure she did her best to make it what I wanted. Unfortunately due to rain we had to move it inside but she made it easy to transition. She really took her time to make my husband and myself comfortable an made sure the pictures were what we wanted. She checked to make sure nothing was sticking out, hair was perfect an she got the perfect shot! I can't wait to see the finished photos! I Definitely plan on hiring her for our sons newborn photos! Thank you so much!!

Laura did an outstanding job during the photo shoot staying patient with my 17 month old son and orchestrated a beautiful experience for my parents-in-law. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.

Megan was a pleasure to work with! I've worked with several photographers before and one thing that seems to be the difference between the good and the bad are their ability to direct the subject. Megan gave great feedback the entire shoot and together we were able to come out with some excellent headshots and photos to use for my business! Highly recommended!

Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography

I have followed Deborah's becoming a skilled photographer, including taking great shots of nature, people having fun, formal portrait setting and more. She can definitely can frame the snots and gets people to relax and have fun. This is doubly impressive in that she has done this while still working full time in the fitness industry.

Jimmy was a very easygoing and flexible photographer. He was very patient as he photographed our large extended family of 15 (including my wily 3 year old son!). We went over in our allotted time and he graciously didn't charge us more for that. Need I say that he was a great value. We got our pictures, edited, back so quickly too, which made it nice because we needed some of the pictures for our holiday cards. He responded to emails very quickly. It should be noted that we were a very rambunctious, 'Type A' sort of group and we provided a lot of the ideas of how we would be composed in each picture. We might have benefitted from more direct guidance from Jimmy on how to be arranged, what angles would look best on us, and getting both kids and adults to look into the camera, but he was probably just going with the flow. A small comment, because we think he would provide that guidance if we were to ask for it. We would definitely utilize his services again! Thanks Jimmy!

Working with Lindsay was a wonderful experience and the end result is better than I ever expected! Of most of the photographers on Thumbtack she also included 20 retouched photos in her price which was refreshing since all other offers included package add-ons. Lindsay's experience was easy, quick, and professional from start to finish!

    Rick took some amazing photos of my work that helped me build my online business. The truly beautiful photos were way beyond what I could do with the camera on my phone (which is what I was using before.) My small business has picked up dramatically since posting the photos he took. What a difference professional photographs are to online traffic. Rick is a professional, quality photographer with a great eye for detail. I plan to enlist him again to continue photographing my future projects.

    Liberty was incredible. Believe it or not, I found her through Instagram. Her work spoke for itself, but from our first phone call, I knew she was the right photographer to capture the surprise proposal I was planning. Not only did she help me plan everything down to the details, she scouted out the venue in advance for me, and was in the perfect place the day-of to get every shot. I couldn't have done it without her. And let's not forget the pictures! They are absolutely perfect. We don't need to do a formal engagement shoot because our mini-session after the proposal was everything we hoped it'd be. I feel lucky to have worked with Liberty - that's the truth :). She's a true professional willing to go the extra mile to make your moment as magical as it should be. Thank you, Liberty, for everything!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

    Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

    How much does baby photography cost?

    Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

    When should you take newborn photos?

    Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
